I love this background. Some of the reviewers claimed it was faded and didn't look like the picture. For a second I thought the same, and then realized the backing needs removal. I purchased a 75 gallon tank so I needed an extra pair of hands putting it on. It looks gorgeous! No more ugly tape everywhere.

by Lex529 Easy to put on if you follow these steps.
Other than the fact that this is my favorite store now, they have such a huge selection of accessories for all types of animals. The staff is very helpful and the managers are accessible for any issues or concerns.
I tried putting on the backdrop dry and it was a mess, it took forever to cling on to the glass. I read another customer's trick and it worked like magic.
Literally took me less than 5 minutes once I had measured the size and applied it this way.
Used water with a couple drops of soap in a squirt bottle to apply. Spray a liberal amount on the glass panel you are applying it to and don't be afraid to over do it. Have some paper towels handy too that you can put on the bottom to soak up any excess. Take a credit card to use like a squeegee and go in sections starting from the top going down. This will allow you to get all the bubbles and water out. If not, you'll end up with a bubbly background that looks like black spots through the tank. When your done, you'll be so happy with the results. Before it looked like a spotted blue background now it looks exactly like it should be.

This cling background was big enough for a larger tank but it cut easily. If you follow the directions (even though using a credit card to smooth out bubbles sounds rather silly) it goes on quite easily. Two caveats: have another person help you, you need a good bit of room to apply so if your tank is against the all, drain enough water to pull it out.
